Maternity - Large Empire Bronze Mantel Clock

Large Empire period clock in chiseled, gilded and patinated bronze, early 19th century.

This refined clock addresses the theme of motherhood and shows the intimate relationship between a mother and her baby, which she was going to in a very elegant setting. Both are seated on a precious sofa embellished with lion heads; under the statue the trapezoidal case, in patinated and gilded bronze decorated with the Amalthea goat suckling Jupiter, contains the movement; the case rests on four gilt bronze lions resting in turn on a rectangular four-legged patinated bronze base.

This clock was almost certainly made to celebrate the birth of the son of Napoleon I and Marie-Louise of Austria in 1811.

This magnificent clock, of museum quality, is entirely from the First Empire period: the movement is contemporary with the case, the bronzes and gilding are authentic. A certificate of authenticity is attached. The original mercury gilding is in excellent condition, with alternating gloss and matte hues; the movement, with wire suspension and striking bell for the hours and half-hours, is complete with balance wheel and original key.

On request the clock is delivered in perfect working order, after revision by our trusted watchmaker.
